Booking Through Thursday
Okay, there must be something you read that's a guilty pleasure . . . a Harlequin romance stashed under the mattress. A cheesy sci-fi book tucked in the back of the freezer. A celebrity biography, a phoned-in Western . . . something that you'd really rather not be spotted reading. Even just a novel if you're a die-hard non-fiction fan. Come on, confess. We won't hold it against you!

If I have any guilty pleasures in my reading, it's probably a love of Chick-lit. Becky Bloomwood, Bridget Jones, shopping, dating, or saving the world in a pair of stilettos is what I like. I get drawn in by the characters' funny antics and then I just can't put it down. I know it's not high-brow (although you could argue that Jane Austen is Classic Chick-lit) but everyone needs a good laugh and sometimes a good cry.
I used to read a lot of Harlequins but I got tired of the 'virgin meets rake and changes him into the perfect man' theme. I gave them up.
To be honest, I don't think anyone should feel guilty about what they read. Everyone has different tastes.
